Immigration officials rejected a waiver that would have released a Dutch visitor taken into custody because he said he has AIDS. An attorney for the visitor, Hans Paul Verhoef, then asked for a parole procedure under which Verhoef would be allowed to attend an AIDS conference in San Francisco, but then must return to the Minnesota prison until the case is resolved.

The California AIDS Leadership Committee, consisting of many of the state's experts on the human immunodeficiency virus epidemic, has unanimously called for a change in the federal regulations that led to the imprisonment of an AIDS-prevention official from the Netherlands en route to an AIDS control meeting in San Francisco. The committee correctly concluded that the regulation does not serve the public interest. The committee acted after meeting with Hans Paul Verhoef, the 31-year-old Netherlands official, following his release by an immigration judge.

A federal judge Friday overrode U.S. immigration officials and ordered a Dutch visitor suffering from AIDS released from prison so he can attend a conference in San Francisco on the disease. Immigration Judge Robert Vinikoor said Hans Paul Verhoef had met standards required to allow him to be excluded from laws barring foreigners with dangerous and communicable diseases from entering the country.

AIDS activists and public health officials Saturday welcomed a 31-year-old Dutch AIDS patient who gained worldwide attention after being jailed last week while attempting to enter the United States to attend a health conference here. Hans Paul Verhoef of Rotterdam arrived in San Francisco late Friday after being freed by U.S. Immigration Judge Robert Vinikoor, who ruled that Verhoef's three-week visit posed "minimal risk to the United States." For Verhoef and other advocates of AIDS patients, Verhoef's ordeal underscored what some have called the foolishness of U.S. regulations that bar foreigners who carry the AIDS-causing human immunodeficiency virus from entering the country--as well as the determination of Immigration and Naturalization Service officials to enforce those regulations.

An immigration official in St. Paul, Minn., said he had recommended Hans Paul Verhoef's release but that a higher-up in Washington would not complete his review of the decision until today.
